Summer Institute in Computational Social Science

Dates:  June 16 – 29, 2019                                   

Application Deadline:  February 20, 2019

The Russell Sage Foundation and the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation will sponsor the third Summer Institute in Computational Social Science, to be held at Princeton University from June 16 – 29, 2019. The purpose of the two-week institute is to introduce graduate students and beginning faculty in the social and data sciences (broadly conceived) to computational social science—the use of digital-age data sources and methods to conduct social research. The program will highlight issues about access, privacy, and confidentiality that are raised by the emergence of computational data and methods. In addition to the event at Princeton, there will also be partner locations run by alumni of the 2017 and 2018 Summer Institute, which will be hosted at other universities. Participation is restricted to Ph.D. students, postdoctoral researchers, and untenured faculty within 7 years of the Ph.D. Most participant costs, including housing, meals, and travel will be covered. We welcome applicants from all backgrounds and fields of study, especially applicants from groups currently under-represented in computational social science.
